About Autumn Woods Health Care Facility

Values, Vision, Patient Care Philosophy

Our mission statement is “Through our care, we will positively affect the lives of our residents, staff, family members and the community at large.”

For more than 30 years, our staff has touched the lives of more than 20,000 patients. We provide the same care to all of our patients, regardless of payment source – every resident receives the same respect and compassion.

The facility does not segregate residents based on payment source and is fully certified in all beds for Medicaid, assuring that everyone receives the same high quality health care experience. Our Medicaid beds are not limited, we do not segregate private, Medicare or Medicaid patients to a particular area, and payment sources are not a deciding factor in admission or placement. Autumn Woods participates in all Medicaid Programs and does not discriminate based on payment source.

Our job is to meet the needs of the community at large – we exist to meet their needs.

Autumn Woods is the only VA certified facility in Macomb County.

Descriptive Information

Environment –  Autumn Woods is a three story structure on 4.5 acres in Warren, Michigan located 0.5 miles north of 12 mile road.

All providers are in good standing with CMS for Medicare and Medicaid Programs and are licensed as appropriate within the State of Michigan.

Clinical Specialties Provided – Therapy is provided 7days/wk; complex medical patients have the advantage of an on-site consultant nephrologist, cardiologist, pulmonary specialist, wound physician, infectious disease specialist, physiatrist, and psychiatrist. These specialist manage the patients in-house in an effort to prevent recurring hospitalizations.

IV therapy is done on a regular basis and the consultant physicians assist with medication management, again to prevent re-hospitalization.

Clinical Care Expectations

Our facility offers 7 day/wk, 24 hour/day admissions. Our open medical staff model allows all attending physicians the opportunity to follow their patients into the facility to maintain consistent care and prevent re-hospitalization.

If they choose not to, one of our facility physicians will follow them until discharge, when they are turned back to the primary care provider.

Physician Coverage

Staffing Model –  The Medical Director, Robert Orzechowski, is a physician who is on staff and is employed by St. John Macomb Hospital. He has working relationships with all of our physicians. Our open staff model encourages any physicians who choose to follow their patients into the long-term care setting.

Clinical Care Model –  Each patient’s individualized plan of care is developed through interdisciplinary assessment and includes the physician, nursing, dietary, therapy and social services. The staff routinely consults with the attending physicians to assure appropriate care and treatment in an effort to meet the established goals and objectives as stated in the plan of care. The facility requires active participation by each physician who must be available 24/hrs/7d/wk. Many patients’ attending physician is their primary care provider. In the event this is not the case, the attending physician follows the patient through the admission and then the facility provides the primary care provider with a complete discharge summary that is delivered to the office in person to assure continuity of care .
